Just curious.
Maybe racist is the wrong term, But Connery getting his eyes taped back so he can look like a local doesn't bother you ?

I actually love the Connery Bond films, Its just that kinda stood out a little, I should just remember the era it was made and at least he didn't try the accent and its not a bad as Live and Let Die

The Devil's Business (DVD) Simply brilliant!
Taken 2 (Cinema) Enjoyable if forgettable action thriller.
Night of the Bloody Apes (DVD) Difficclt to see why this was ever cut.

The Seven Samurai - interesting, but fell short of being the real classic I thought it was going to be. And the japanese language just does my head in!

The Hurt Locker - superb. Best (non)action film I've seen for a very long time.

Inglorious Basterds - typical Tarantino, well put together, quirky, bloodthirsty and very entertaining. Great soundtrack too.

Get the Gringo - great stuff from Gibson - very funny, smart and violent.
Blood Creek - Not what you'd expect from Schumacher. Promising opening goes all wrong.
From Russia With Love - Still one of the very best Bonds.

The Ides of March-good, but should have been better given the cast & names involved.

John Carter-I really liked it!

Rocky Balboa-A guilty pleasure...

The Pact - 5/10 - thought the ending wasn't the greatest
Taken 2 - 3/10 - found it a complete waste of time
Frost/Nixon - 8/10 great movie

Prometheus – Worse on second viewing. All its shortcomings are much more prominent.

Rogue – Quite a fun crocodile horror movie

Fallen – Time is on my side . . . yes it is.

Less Than Zero - Robert Downey Jr & friends do LOTS of drugs. Extremely 80s, but I loved it. Can't believe it's taken me 25 years to get round to seeing it!

Blood Feast 2: All U Can Eat - Very silly, but Herschell Gordon Lewis lives up to his 'Godfather of Gore' nickname. The bit with the corkscrew made me feel quite ill - it just went on and on and on... Lovely group of ladies though Shame they all got killed off so quickly...

The House on the Edge of the Park - Another Italian video nasty. Almost lived up to its reputation, but as seems to be the pattern with these things, the ending made no sense at all.

Oh dear

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (BD) - Excellent.

Avengers Assemble (dirty rotten UK BD) - Basically a stock superhero action flick but saved by excellent dialog.

The Monster in Paris (BD rental) - Charming animation almost derailed by a group of stock characters... however, as it develops it becomes less predictable; the music is lovely although jarringly anachronistic.

X-files: Fight for the Future: The original XF movie. I have seen it so many times, it might even catch-up with Aliens as my most seen film someday. Apart from being a committed X-phile, I love the script with all its corny Mulder nuances (who else would drive straight on at a T-junction?) and the superb cinematography. The entire cornfield sequence is one the best 15-minutes in cinema history (and logic be damned). 9/10

The Hunger Games: I was uncertain how I would like it but got the Blu-ray anyway and saw it a few days ago. Like it a lot overall - good script, cinematography and well fleshed-out characters for the most part despite the unusual and occasionally violent theme. I am eager to see the other two parts when they come out, knowing that the same actors will be reprising their roles. 8/10

Sinister: Saw it at the cinema yesterday only because I had a few hours to kill before my train. A rather mediocre film treading a path that has been trod through a few times before in other guises. The characters are shallow, the script a bit contrived, even forced in places and it is all too predictable. But worth a watch for those who like horror films. 5.5 to 6/10 at best.

Premium Rush (Cinema) Bland but inoffensive film about a New York bicycle messenger whose delivery attracts the attention of a corrupt cop. Some good bicycle chase scenes through the New York traffic.

Savages (Cinema) Pretty solid, although largely unoriginal, crime thriller from Oliver Stone.

Visions of Ecstasy (DVD) Disappointing. Expected more from this short film that was banned for many years.

Captain America - Really fun, and loved the way they made Chris Evans seem so puny during the first 20 minutes or so of the film - great fx work.

Inbred - Disappointing and not as offensive as I'd heard but some decent gore and the occasional funny line. A bit like a film version of The League of Gentlemen (which I thought was rubbish).

Human Centipede 2 - Very funny and totally disturbing. I need to watch the first one now!

The Perks of Being a Wallflower (cinema) - So much better than the trailer; funny, warm and moving, second best film of the year for me so far.

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows pts 1 & 2 (BD) - Excellent.

Dark Shadows (inflight 4:3 ) - A lot better than I expected, with some funny lines; but the final act is a mess.

Hunger Games-OK but didn't think it was all that tbh

Mission Impossible:Ghost Protocal -Pegg's inclusion "in the field" makes for a more enjoyable viewing experience IMO

Centurian-enjoyed this too Fassbender and West were fine in this.

(more than 3 this time)

Senna- thought this was an excellent docu that brought back the times when I used to watch F1

And lastly for a laugh Thrive the full movie on YouTube

Wrath of the Titans - Wouldnt normally watch stuff like this but was quite entertaining actually!

Raiders of the Lost Ark - Made the g/f watch this for the first time. She said it was a rip off of her favourite PS3 game, Uncharted

The Exorcist - Still a classic and still manages to make me feel uncomfortable

Looper - enjoyable sci-fi action romp. 7/10

Argo - tense, authentic spy/hostage film with well-placed/timed humour. 8.5/10

The Sapphires - didn't think i would like this but went along just because i have a so-called (well, my mrs says so!) "man-crush" on chris o'dowd. turned out it's a fun, endearing kind-of aboriginal version of the commitments. really couldn't fault it. great soundtrack. really entertaining. 9/10

The Cabin in the Woods. Great fun, a minor gripe or two aside. Jenkins always good value. Even looking forward to a third viewing when I get it back from my colleague. Also funny - one scene alone is better than most Will Ferrell vehicles combined.

Above the Law. Ah, those were the days - watch some blokes having a fight, and you'd see some blokes having a fight. If this were filmed now you'd see some blurred close-ups of body parts cobbled together by a convulsing amateur on his Fisher Price editing playkit.

The Dictator. Well, at least it was short.
